Cheilectomy and scar tissue
I have posted numerous articles following my surgery – apologies but am anxious for any info anyone can provide.
I was not too happy with the results of my surgery in December – still had no movement and pain.
My Consultant referred me for physio.
I am currently having physio and ultra-sound once a week which is resulting in limited movement but am still experiencing pain.
The physio seems to think I may regain more movement but will most probably always have pain. Regaining movement seems to be pointless if I am to be in pain as the pain stops me from using the joint!!
My physio seems to think there may be a build up of scar tissue preventing movement.
Can anything be done about this?
Can a second cheilectomy be performed to remove the scar tissue?
Also I still have a lump over the joint (should this have been removed with the first cheilectomy?).
Would love to hear from anyone who has maybe had similar problems.
